At Boutique Laser & Skin Spa, technology offers a path to amplified beauty. Its owner Monika, who is laser treatment certified for hair removal, skin tightening, and photo facials, has worked with several top physicians in the NYC metro area. Many of the spa's advanced treatments are powered by Palomar StarLux laser light: it helps inhibit hair growth in follicles during hair-removal treatments, rejuvenate faces during photofacials, and tighten skin during wrinkle reduction by stimulating collagen production. Other services like body contouring, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening use the Alma Accent XL laser. For services without lasers, like microdermabrasion, diamond microdermabrasion, facials, and designer peels, the staff uses products and methods backed by a history of results.

The confectionery alchemists residing in Three Dogs’ kitchen wield gluten-free recipes to conjure up delicious cookies, a bevy of baked goods, and cakes for all occasions. Diligent ovens spend mornings incubating muffins ($1.50 each) and scones ($3 each), warming up for such larger midday deliveries as loaves of bread ($8) or scale gingerbread models of Fallingwater. Cupcakes ($1.50–$2) parade in seasonably fashionable coats of icing behind glass displays surrounded by adoring throngs of freshly baked cookies ($0.75–$1.50). Assuage multi-layered cravings with 8"x8" pans of bar cookies ($12), which double as boards for impromptu chess games between rival pâtissiers.
Raymond A. Kolkmann founded Raymond Opticians in 1959, prior to the advent of advanced lens technology, and consequently perfected his ability to pair patients with their optimal prescriptions. He later passed this skill to his three sons, who, in turn, imparted the art of optometry to their own sons through careful instruction and basic osmosis. Today, Raymond Opticians' third generation of ocular outfitters benefits from not only the techniques and standards developed by Raymond Sr., but also from modern lens technology, such as Varilux lenses that help correct vision problems and Transitions, which darken when outside. After examining and diagnosing each patient's eye issues, the doctors help them select from a vast array of designer frames and sunglasses by Oakley, Prada, and Versace.
